haha. for that I had to logout and register...

it is 20 now, but the user I mentioned is register in 2006. what was the limit at that time?

and the question has only 2 condition:
1] longest username
2] id less than 60K

yep but how does knowing the longest possible length help?
(a) as nimesh points out it may have changed and perhaps usernames can't be as long as they were then
(b) so what if you know the maximum length is say 25, how does that help you find the longest username?

25 chars, as nimesh....
id 155 has حور الجن but in original language it's 8 chars, so it doesn't count, i think :/
i regret, that i found this topic just now, it take some time to find the longest one... :/

+------+---------------------------+
|  614 | special_rahul@yahoo.co.in |
